Letter: More casinos just means more poor people

Why are all these casinos being built with all the unemployed people living here in the United States? Sure, the housing may be on the upswing, but that doesn't say or mean that more people have more money.

Yes, casinos may be competing with another, but more casinos will make more people poorer. Yes, a few might get rich, but how many of these people will know when to say, "Stop." More casinos will bring more gangs and add to the population in the gangs already here.

Who pays for these casinos?
